Protein & Fat Rule

The staple of your dog’s meal is meat. You can buy meat from the grocery store or from the butcher. The fat content should be between 10% and 20%, including any oils you add to your dog’s meals. 

All of your dog’s energy requirements come from just three sources: protein, fat and carbohydrate. These macronutrients are the only source of calories (energy) for your dog.

Calcium Rule

10% to 15% of your dog’s total diet needs to be bone. Puppies need at least 12% and up to 15% bone.


It’s important that your dog’s bone is raw … cooking bones will cause them to dry out and this can create dangerous sharp edges.

Organ Meat Rule

Liver should be 10% of the diet. Heart should be 5% of the diet.  These organs are essential.
You should also try to get kidney, pancreas, spleen, lung, eyes, brain, sweetbread and green tripe. These can be an additional 5% to 10% of the diet, if your dog can tolerate it.  A simple way to get organs is to add them as a supplement like  Ancestral supplements Human grade Or Guts & Glory
